I had one signing company refuse to accept my NNA Certified Signing Agent Certificate. She wanted the background report itself. I refused to give her the background report. She claimed her clients required more than NNA required---but would not be more specific. Needless to say, I'm not signed up with that company.

NSA's---you need to protect yourself! If you share your info --whatever it might be--with a signing company, you then have no control who they share it with. Providing them with your NNA Certified Signing Agent certificate should be adequate--they can verify its validity with NNA. You do not need to provide a copy of your background report.

The background check I've found works best is from "National Notary Association". I've never had anyone refuse it.

Have you had a background check before? Most companies want either the NNA or Sterling background check, which Fidelity Title accepts. Some of the others, like the one through NotaryRotary, although one of the best, are not accepted by Fidelity at this time. I have my background check through Sterling and I had to be referred by a signing service before they would process the BG check. Sterling only charges for the BG check. You do not have to join or be certified for anything.

Where is the best place to get a new background check from? I know they all charge different and some companies don't take other companies checks. Seems like you have to have several done from different places for different title companies. Any ideas or recommendations?
